Forum: GratefulDead Subject: upload date ????

How can I tell when a particular source has been added to the archive? Is there a date listed on the sources opening page along with the track list and recording info etc...?
I'm not seeing it anywhere, but I can be a bit thick sometimes....if it is right under my nose, could someone point it out for me.... Thanks

Listening to 6-19-80 TDIH. There are 2 SBD sources and 1 AUD. IMO the aud source is far superior to the SBD sources. Neither SBd is mixed very well. There are a few reviews for the SBDs but not a single one for the AUD. It got me curious as to how long the aud source had been around without even a single review...

I dont know if the upload date is anywhere on the files, but if you click "check for other copies" you can then sort these by "date added" by clicking the advanced search options at the right side of that page.

Dont assume that just because a file/source is newer, that it is superior to the older files. There is quite a bit of flotsam and jetsam drifting in here and quite often the newer files are inferior to the exhisting source(s)...

Thanks Cliff....
I agree that newer doesn't always mean better. The 6-19-80 show is a perfect example. I sorted like you said and found that the aud was the 2nd of the 4 to be added, but IMO is the best of the sources.
I find that "best source" is another of those things that is a matter of opinion. the source I like is often times different than what most others like...I was just curious as to how long it had been up. It seemed surprising to me that with over 1400 "downloads", that no one had bothered to write a review. Guess I'll have to be the first.
It is a pretty nice show BTW. Nothing spectacular, but a good show with a set list that I happen to enjoy!!
